These curriculums are designed to prepare students through the study and application of principles from mathematics, natural sciences, technology and applied processes based on these subjects.
Course work includes mathematics, natural sciences, engineering sciences and technology.
Graduates should qualify to obtain occupations such as technical service providers, materials and technologies testing services, process improvement technicians, engineering technicians, industrial and technology managers, or research technicians. A course of study that prepares the students to use basic engineering principles and technical skills in developing and testing automated, servomechanical, and other electromechanical systems. Includes instruction in prototype testing, manufacturing and operational testing, systems analysis and maintenance procedures. Graduates should be qualified for employment in industrial maintenance and manufacturing including assembly, testing, startup, troubleshooting, repair, process improvement, and control systems, and should qualify to sit for Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI) mechatronics or similar industry examinations.
Upon successful completion of the Mechatronics program, the graduate should be able to:
- Demonstrate proficiency in Mechatronics systems
- Perform preventive maintenance on a variety of industrial systems involving electronics, sensors, actuators, fluid mechanics, instrumentation, and controls
- Write programs for controllers used in Mechatronics systems
- Demonstrate methods for isolating problems in mechatronics systems
- Effectively communicate function of components used in a loop control system
- Demonstrate the professional employability skills that are expected in the workplace
- Perform all work within safety guidelines established by Mechatronics department and equipment manufacturers
